'''Carl Benjamin Boyer''' (November 3, 1906 – April 26, 1976) was an American historian of sciences, and especially mathematics. Novelist David Foster Wallace called him the "Edward Gibbon|Gibbon of mathematics|math history". It has been written that he was one of few historians of mathematics of his time to "keep open links with contemporary history of science."Gray, Jeremy (2016) "Histories of Modern Mathematics in English in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s" in Remmert, Volker R.; Schneider, Martina; and Kragh Sørensen, Henrik (eds.)
